Processing (i don't like to type it with 55 =P but I know its the
original...) is completly transparent to OS. It works normally with Linux,
just grab it and launch it. Its java... so its JavaVM and OS-independent.

I have used processing with Pd, currently I'm using AS3 because its faster
for me...(coding wise). Although I'd rather have this on p5 because its
fully open.
